two republican governors

Two sane Republicans -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (CA) and Gov. Jodi Rell (CT) write to complain that the de facto Bush Administration's Environmental Protection Agency is still blocking state plans to reduce carbon emissions. Even after the recent court ruling that carbon IS covered under the Clean Air Act, the EPA won't give California, Connecticut, and other states permission to reduce auto emissions at the state level.

Good for Schwarzenegger and Rell. But, despite their bravado that "It's high time the federal government becomes our partner or gets out of the way," getting out of the way isn't enough. We need Washington to be meaningfully involved in trying to mitigate climate change.
